Designer: Charles Ray & Eames 1951
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
The Wire Chair was created the same year as the Eames Plastic Chair and, like this chair, is a sign of Charles and Ray Eames intense study of the design of the one-piece, organically shaped seat shell. The seat shell of chromiumplated steel wire gives the amazingly comfortable chair the expression of technical lightness.

Base: four-legged base with cross struts, surface finish matched to seat shell. Fitted with plastic glides for carpet; felt glides for hard floors optionally available.
Upholstery: Seat and back pads can be removed and reattached; available in Hopsak fabric or leather.
